Canadian Football News in 1882[edit]

The Canadian Rugby Football Union was founded on October 21, 1882. The organisation disbanded and re-emerged as the Canadian Rugby Union in 1892. The season of 1882 opened on May 13 with the Britannia Football Club and Montreal Football Club playing to a 0-0 tie. In the fall on October 4, the Britannia Football Club and RMC[clarification needed] scored a goal but it was another 1-1 tie and the Brits were undefeated. On October 21 they defeated their cross-town rivals, Montreal 1 goal to nil and then defeated McGill 2 goals to nil to again capture the city championship.[1]
